The warm temp in 30’s and brisk wind seemed to compact the thin snow, it got slow. Plus lots of snowmobile tracks getting sticky. A little rain will make it like a railroad freight yard, enough rain might bring back our now accustomed glassy stuff. Three Cheapies and Jory’s Miniskeeter actually raced around buoys, great time had by all, lunch in a lee, and a short tour and back to Bog bridge and home.
Chickawaukee blew and likely sublimed to mostly clear with scattered small drifts. Most, but not all open water frozen and we have all of February (“as days get longer cold grows stronger”) to maybe get ye olde frog pond back in action.
